Annual Fall Booksale

This year's Fall Booksale will be on September 30th and October 1st - but Friends of the Library can get special early access on September 29th! Friends memberships are $5 per person, $10 for the family, $15 for sponsor-level membership, and $100 for a lifetime membership - and you can even sign up at the door on the 29th.

Prices range from $0.25 to $1.00, so hurry in - our stock will go fast. We definitely suggest becoming a Friend so you can get first pick!

The sale takes place at Merrillville Branch in Meeting Room A (on the lower level next to the Children's Department).
